Building a sustainable economy in a world of finite resources

Enough is Enough by Neil Shubin

'In rich countries today, consumption consists of people spending money they don't have to buy goods they don't need to impress people they don't like.' - Clive Hamilton, Enough is Enough  

It’s time for a new kind of economy.

We’re overusing the earth’s finite resources, and yet excessive consumption is failing to improve our lives. In Enough Is Enough, Rob Dietz and Dan O’Neill lay out a visionary but realistic alternative to the perpetual pursuit of economic growth – an economy where the goal is enough, not more.

They explore specific strategies to conserve natural resources, stabilize population, reduce inequality, fix the financial system, create jobs, and more – all with the aim of maximizing long-term well-being instead of short-term profits. Filled with fresh ideas and surprising optimism, Enough Is Enough is the primer for achieving genuine prosperity and a hopeful future for all.
